The above link explains what to look for when engine can crank but cannot be started. It can be anything feom a bad carank sensor to a fail engnine computer and you need to diagnose the problem first.

Was a scan tool used to check for trouble codes?
If engine is equipped with immobilizer, ensure the transponder is still intact with key as for Nissan models, the transponder can get lost when the key fob is dropped and breaks open.
